We first met Allen DaVico before we had even moved to the Charlotte, NC area. My husband and I had decided that when we sold our house in Indiana, we wanted to make a big move and had been completing road trips over the past couple years and driving through towns, neighborhoods, etc. to pick one we liked. We had reached out to the Allen Tate office to see if anyone would mind showing us the area as we were interested in potentially moving there. Despite how flaky that sounds to most people, Allen met with us anyway and showed us some neighborhoods he thought we would like as well as a general overview of the Lake Norman submarket. Cut to seven months later, and Allen met with us for a whirlwind tour of rental properties, one of which we rented for a year, and then a year later he helped us buy our current dream home. Throughout this long process, Allen was always very responsive, friendly, and made us feel like a top priority whenever we were with him. Our home buying process was made easy by the MLS searches and emails that Allen set up for us, and then Allen went above and beyond to learn our tastes and find properties that we would like on his own as well. Once we found one, buying our home was mostly stress free as he explained each step of the process and had wonderful local contacts, like the lawyer, inspector, etc., that truly made us feel we were in safe hands. We would utilize Allen again in a heartbeat as his honesty and experience truly shine through in everything that he does.
Testimonial By Wesley Sweatt: "I cannot say enough great things about Mr. DaVico. We actually came across Allen by chance while looking for an agent on a Saturday afternoon to show us a home that we had found while driving through Denver, NC. We had been thinking about selling our home, but hadn't really committed to the idea because of the housing market's downward trend in recent years. Out of the 5 agents that we left voicemail's for, Allen was the only one that called us back the same day. I remember that we joked at the time as he made lite of the fact that "Agents these days tend to think that Saturday's not a work day... that's not me!" We set up a time to meet Allen in order to formulate a game plan on how we should approach the selling of our current home and what were our best purchasing options for the next house in Lincoln County, NC.
First of all, the process that Allen put in place to list our house was pretty effortless for us. The guy told us where to focus our attention to "tidy" up the home and how to stage the home to make it feel more inviting. He hired a professional photographer out of his own pocket to photo document the house and also made a video of the property that he listed on Youtube. He had the home professionally measured, posted a floor plan online and made himself available for any questions that we may have had along the way. That is the great thing about Allen... he ALWAYS answers the phone or calls you right back. If he can't call you back, he sends you a text. If he cant text, he sends an e-mail!! Needless to say, we had 2 showings within 8 hours of our home being "officially listed" on the market.
Roughly 3 weeks later, we had a signed offer on the house! It was amazing how easy the process was. This agent goes to bat with/for you every step of the way! Thank God, because we absolutely needed him to go to bat for us on the home we ended up purchasing after closing on our old house. Allen showed us roughly 20+ homes during our property search. He was relentless in his efforts to help us narrow our search criteria in order to find the perfect house. I remember the day we walked into what is now our new home... we all had a good feeling about the property, but there was never any pressure to commit too soon from Allen. We ended up making the decision to put a offer on the property we fell in love with while standing in the middle of the street in front of a newly constructed property that just didn't have the character of the previous home! Allen was there every step of the way throughout the negotiating process in order for us the secure the best purchase price, the lending process in order for us to secure the most attractive loan offer, the inpsection process... The guy even put on a bee suit and helped to relocate roughly 30,000 bees that had constructed a honeycomb within the wall of the garage!! How many realtors would actually do that????
The final closing on our new home went as easy as the day we decided to list our previous property. Allen DaVico is the real deal in the world of real estate agents! If you want a guy that will get your property sold quickly and for a fair price, you should search out this agent. If you're looking for a realtor that will do EVERYTHING in his power to help you secure your next dream house... this is the guy you should contact... even on a Saturday! Mr. DaVico is an amazing realtor and has become a great friend as well! "

Allen is a true professional who is dedicated to providing the highest level of service for his clients. Our house was sold in less than 2 weeks with Allen, prior to that it sat for 4 months with an agent that only hoped it would sell itself. John and Claire Catalano Formerly of Riverbend, Charlotte NC
